SHOT Show 2016 – American Shooting Journal winners

Recapping an excellent trade show

The American Shooting Journal featured a forever-spinning raffle wheel that never stopped during the 2016 SHOT Show. The winners were endless, we couldn’t feature them all.

Louie Tuminaro AKA The Gunfather with veteran Jose Martinez whose image we felt earned the right to adorn the November 2015 veteran’s cover of ASJ and Theresa “T-Bone” Tuminaro grinningly signed autographs.

 

The American Shooting Journal SHOT Show booth was packed throughout the show. The raffle wheel never stopped spinning and shooting out great prizes to winners all day long.

 

Utiliclip

Ulti-Clip was in the house. This little gadget redefines the idea of having a concealed holster and stole the show this year. We were thrilled to partner with them.

 

Savoy Leather

Savoy Leather makes custom leather holsters for all walks of gun toters. This Vietnam vet was thrilled with his loot from the raffle wheel.

Chuck Larson Shyanne fans-min

Chuck Larson, president of Rock River Arms and sponsor for youth shooter Shyanne Roberts  had to have his photo taken with her cover poster. 

Among the great prizes that the raffle wheel spun out, this Cold Steel blade was a treasure.

We armed this dangerous woman with an amazing Hogue hatchet after she presented her GOLDEN TICKET and spun the great prize wheel. Awesome!

Law enforcement officer Joe Gallagher won the Layke Tactical .308 AR, and all thanks to the The Gunfather’s wife Theresa “T-Bone” who spun the wheel for him. Isn’t he thrilled she spun the wheel?

One of our amazing prizes was the sniper crossbow by Mission by Matthews. This winner was stoked.

Robert Bodron, owner and custom gunsmith of Riverdale Custom Shop, won the RTD Arms .308 RT-10. This guy must be related to Grizzly Adams.

M1 Carbine Pistol? – Please Advise

Inland Manufacturing has just announced their new and fascinating pistol. It’s an M1, it’s a carbine and it’s a pistol, but we will have to wait until March 2016 to have one of our very own.

Flash Hider Angle 2 Jpg-min

M1 “Advisor” Carbine Pistol’s Flash Hider

The new “Advisor,” Inland’s M1 pistol, features many of the same characteristics of their original carbines and is modeled after the modified M1 carbines that were a popular conversion made by US Military advisors during the Vietnam Era. These “Military Advisors” found that the compact and reliable M1 carbine could be made even more suitable for their specific missions by cutting the barrels down to pistol lengths and using either a cut down standard stock or the M1A1 folding stock – the folder was the stock of choice if they could get their hands on one.

Rt Side Jpg-min

These modified M1 carbines were favored by the US Military Advisors as well as the Tunnel Rats tasked with clearing the matrix of tunnels and engaging in extreme close quarters.

The new 2016 Inland Advisor features a 12-inch barrel with a type two barrel band, adjustable rear sights, push-button safety, round bolt and a low-wood walnut stock modified M1A1 stock – minus the wire portion of the stock – making the Advisor a legal pistol.

This pistol includes a 15-round magazine and uses a 30-round magazine catch to allow high capacity magazines. The flash hider is conical and threaded ½ x 28 tpi allowing any accessory with he same threading. The modifications to the M1A1 stock still allows the user to reattach the wire portion of the stock, however NFA rules would then apply. ASJ
